Avoiding Sneezes on Valentine’s Day
Nothing says “I Love You” like a big bouquet of flowers – unless your valentine suffers from pollen allergies. Luckily, there are plenty of low-pollen flowers you can choose from to make a brilliant bouquet.
Go for the classics
Try something exotic
Give a potted bloom
Consider (certain) lilies
Fillers to use and avoid
Roses, the traditional blooms, are actually a great choice for allergy sufferers, since their pollen doesn’t become airborne (they rely on insects to pollinate). Hybrid Tea roses or big roses that are still in the bud are great choices. Big sprays of free-flowering garden roses, like Banksia roses, are pollen-free.
